Generally thinking of Las Vegas, weddings, casinos and decadent hotels spring to mind. But there’s much, much more to this city of endless opportunities. A desert metropolis built on gambling, vice and other forms of entertainment, in just a century of existence Las Vegas has drawn millions of visitors and trillions of dollars in wealth to southern Nevada. From helicopter flights over the strip to hot air balloon rides and from Hoover dam excursions to shooting experiences there are plenty of Las Vegas attractions outside of the casinos. The city was founded by ranchers and railroad workers but quickly found that its greatest asset was not its springs but its casinos. Las Vegas is the natural base from which to explore the spectacular Grand Canyon. There are plenty of family-friendly attractions and tours children will love – and those designed for you to enjoy, too! When it comes to the city itself, you can explore on foot, including the famous ‘Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas’ sign, all the hotels and resorts along Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street in Downtown Vegas. Las Vegas isn’t shy of culture and you’ll find some exclusive galleries and exhibitions in this popular city.
